May 11th + 12th Match Updates

NPL 1

Obviously the biggest shock this week was Wollongong losing to Rockdale, who have extended their win streak to 5 and have launched themselves to 2nd on the table. This all comes from a very shaky start to the season and it seems that the sacking of coach Paul Reid may sparked the flame that was missing.

Elsewhere Mt Druitt Town Rangers recorded their 2nd win of the season and in doing so were the only side to score more than 1 goal in a match with their 2-1 victory over fellow relegation candidates Hakoah who are also last on the table.

In the derby Sydney United and Sydney Olympic played out a 1-1 draw with Olympic supporter group not attending the game. Both sides are 4th and 5th respectively with APIA rounding out the top 5 in 3rd.

Sharks 1-1 draw with Sydney FC gave them vital club championship points with Hakoah hot on their heels, and it appears unless things change the two sides will be fighting it out for survival.

NPL 2

Starting with the biggest win of the weekend, Hills United smashed Canterbury Bankstown 6-0 to secure 2nd on the table whilst leaving the Bankstown side the only team without a win still.

Wanderers maintained their dominance with a 3-0 win over St George City, keeping their lead at the top of the club championship and there is little doubt they are favourite’s to play NPL 1 next season.

Northern Tigers and Spirit recorded multiple goal wins away from home whilst Bonnyrigg will be kicking themselves for not taking points from a very win-able game.

Rams, St George and Canterbury maintain their placings inside the relegation zone.

NPL 3

Once again NPL 3 delivered the goods with 32 goals scored across the games and two 4-3 results.

Western NSW taking what would be called a shock win away from home beating Uni 4-3 whilst Stanmore Hawks also recorded a close win against Raiders.

Parramatta’s horror season continues and for once it wasn’t a case of new coach new team, although they are much improved going down 1-0 to a strong Lions side.

Gladesville Ryde Magic maintain their lead in the Club Championship by 2 points and maintain 2nd on the table, 2 points off the pace after their 4-0 win.

Keep an eye on the relegation sides as Stanmore have more than done enough to separate themselves from the pack whilst Inter Lions 3-1 win has contributed to them staying more than a full round clear.

State League

Finally getting into the State League now and we’re starting with what may be upset of the round with Gazy recording a 2-0 win away to Condors. This has launched the side into 6th and we may very well be seeing them play finals this season.

Fraser Park and Central Coast continued their form with multiple goal victories whilst Hurstville FC got a 1-0 win away from home to tie Fraser for 1st, only difference being goal differential.

South Coast Flame recorded a 2-0 win away from home as the club continues their turn of form.

Central Coast United has a 22 point lead over Fraser Park in the CC with Hurstville and Flame not too far away depending on the outcome of their catch up games.

And finally we are excited to report that Gazy have lifted themselves from the bottom of the CC table to 2nd last, Balmain now taking over the honours.
